DATE: august 2019

LOCATION: Qingdao, China

PROGRAM: office, educational

AREA: 1310 sq.m.

This project is a refurbisment of an old university building, in particular of its top three floors to contain some classroom and office areas and a big workshop and conference space on the top floor.

As much as possible, close to the facades with windows vegetable plants were located and the partitions around offices and classrooms are maintained relatively transparent to keep the light flowing within the space. The geometries are quite regular in the classroom and office areas but go progressively more organic and curvy in the bigger conference and workshop areas to encourage creativity and connections between people.
